Charlie Chaplin would have been so proud of his granddaughters Carmen Chaplin and Dolores Chaplin‘s fashion sense. His stunning offspring hosted a special screening of the acclaimed silent film, The Artist, in Beverly Hills last night with writer/director Michel Hazanavicius and the cast including Berenice Bejo, Penelope Ann Miller, James Cromwell and Missi Pyle.
Carmen wore a stunning black floor length Dolce & Gabbana gown and Dolores was clad in slinky black satin Yves St. Laurent dress. Bejo added a bolt of color with her bright orange dress with short lace sleeves and collar.

Also on hand — or rather paw — was Uggie, the 9-year-old Jack Russell who steals all the scenes in the silent film. He plays George Valentin’s (played by Jean Dujardin) best friend. Uggie sticks by Valentin through thick and thin when he falls from grace and cannot work in the talkies.
“He really is part of George’s life. They are Siamese twins. It was actually quite easy to work with Uggie, because he’s a really well trained dog. I just had to follow him a little bit, improvise a little bit,” Dujardin has explained.

He has also admitted that part of any successful relationship is keeping it fresh. Perhaps their friendship was also based on the sausages he kept in his pockets. With or without those sausages, Uggie posed on the red carpet last night, did a few solo tricks for photographers and seemed to enjoy being held by director Hazanavicius for group shots.
The glamorous Chaplin granddaughters are collaborating on their own film — an exotic take on “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” — which Carmen will direct and Dolores will star in. It will be shot in Mumbai, titled Bombay Night and Dolores says it’s freely adapted from Truman Capote’s short story and will be darker than the film, more like Capote’s original tale.
